Maybe I missed something, but what is the point?

“Because it is there!”? I don’t know. I many times wonder why people do some of the things they do. Some of those things are very dangerous and life threatening … a matter of tempting fate.

The Baikal is one of the largest natural lakes in the world, and to cross it is a great achievement..It was tried to been crossed during the winter of 1920 by the retreating White Russian army, calling it the Great Ice March, where hundreds of men had frozen in place while trying to cross the Baikal by Siberian micro climates, when temperatures were increasingly drop to -40 degrees, and lower, and windchills in which would freeze your lungs as you try to breath the frozen Baikal air…! A little background information..! At it’s deepest point the Baikal is 5,387 ft deep, is almost 400 miles in length, and 49 mi. in width, and is totally impassible during winter by ship.. It is 1 of 2 of earth’s great rift valley lakes, 1 is lake Tanganyika in Africa, and the other being Lake Baikal… Why does man do these things, like crossing the Baikal, or even walking on the moon…? Who knows maybe even one day we will even be seeing recumbent trikes on the moon…! But the answer is just this simple, Because It Is there…! That’s why anything is done, man’s curiosity to conquer the unknown…! Sometimes the world most greatest, and smartest of men do the unthinkable, such as crossing the Baikal, and only to see if it could be done.. What have you chosen to do…? All men have their own Baikal, what is yours, because it man’s nature to try the impossible…!

Well for me, the point is two-fold: 1) Live a great adventure, and 2) Explore and experience the natural world in a wild way. Backcountry adventure is both exciting and dangerous, elevating my mind out of the hum-drum of common modern existence. My motto has always been: If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space! I lived it in my former days of Jeep travel, and now on trikes. It’s kind of like a song that gets stuck in your head ;-)
